Below is a closeup of just a few of the finer points of our Rotating Flagpoles.  Please wait for the photo's to load, and feel free to click on any of the photo's as they are expandable.

The flagpole to the left has a stock 3 x 5 flag attached.  You will notice that there is a slight sag between the flag and the flagpole.  This is because flags come standard with 2 grommets/holes to attach the flag to the flagpole.  A grommet on each end of the flag.  This works but results in a sagging center.

We add a grommet to the center of the flag which takes up the extra slack in the center.  Please see the photo to the right.

The photo to the left shows a little closer view of the center grommet.  While this isn't necessary it provides extra support for the flag and a little nicer appearance.

As many of you probably know pcv pipe comes with ink printing on the side, lables, and generally a lot of dirt.  We remove all of the lables from the pvc pipe and fittings, then we use a 2 part process to remove the ink printing, dirt, and whiten the  pvc pipe.  The photo on the left shows a raw piece of pvc pipe as we get it.  The photo on the right shows the same piece of pvc pipe after we get done with it.  We believe this really adds to the appearance of our flagpoles.

The flagpole on the left uses eyebolts to hold the flag, eyebolts go through the pvc pipe and protrude out the top.  In our opinion this is unsightly.  Our flagpole pictured on the right has a much nicer appearance as we use eyescrews for flag attachment which don't protrude through the pvc.

The flagpole on the left uses a steel pin to attach the mid pipe section to the bottom of the pvc tee.  This is not only uneccasary but also unsightly.  We glue this section.  As you can see from the photo on the right or our Rotating Flagpole it makes for a much neater appearance.
